i have acid reflux daily, have for over three years (since i was pregnant). sometimes just bending over will make painful acid come into my throat. my doctor saw an ulcer wen looking in my mouth. i have had sever pain daily in my upper left protion of my abdomen, getting worse over the past six months or so. im going to assume thats an ulcer too (though not sure). i also have blood in my stools (have for a while), occasionally blood and mucus mixed. my doctor has been wrong about a lot of things so i don't trust her.
so anyway, my major problem is can bleeding ulcers lead to anything serious, such as death or cancer? i have lost my health insurance and cannot afford treatment. the pain is bad and antacids and prolosec dont help anymore. the doctor said ulcers go away on their own. IS THAT TRUE?
These are severe symptoms and quite likely due to serious problems. The short answer is yes, you can suffer serious complications by ignoring most of the things that might be causing these. It is quite likely that evaluating these now and treating the problems will ultimately cost you much less than ignoring them.
